Staying safe in the sun


We want all our children and staff to enjoy spending time outside safely without the risk of the harmful effects of the sun. Our Sun and Heatwave Safety Policy outlines some suggestions to help cope with hot weather:

  • Children should wear hats when outside for PE lessons and during playtimes


  • Children should have sun cream applied to them before they come to school


  • Children should bring a plastic bottle of non flavoured water to school every day


  • Children will be encouraged to drink water throughout the school day


  • Water bottles should be taken home and washed thoroughly at home


  • Children with Asthma, breathing difficulties or other relevant health conditions should have their necessary prescribed medication in school and parents must have completed necessary paperwork
